About the Author

Aliza is also the host of the hit podcast, Raising Good Humans. She holds a BA from Dartmouth College, an MA in Risk, Resilience, and Prevention from the Department of Human Development at Teacher's College and her PhD in developmental psychology from Columbia University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Aliza also holds a teaching certificate in mindfulness and meditation from The Greater Good Science Center at the University of California at Berkeley. Aliza is the mother of two teenagers.


"What Aliza does is come in and teach us how to individually handle how we raise children as well as ourselves. Her process is empowering and based not just on one person's opinion. It seems impossible for one human to know so much research and yet her hard work has paid off for all of us. She lacks judgment and helps us all quiet the inner voices of doubt and gets us all into problem solution mode. I simply don't know what I would do without her wisdom. She is my go-to for how we all, including ourselves, RAISE GOOD HUMANS!" --Drew Barrymore

Respected by colleagues and parents alike, her work is impactful and powerful, influencing how this generation of parents thinks about and cultivates their children's development. I love this book!" --Tina Payne Bryson, LCSW, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling co-author of The Whole-Brain Child & No-Drama Discipline, and author of The Bottom Line for Baby
